Welcome to the GORITTA Gear Gauntlet
, where we compare and review different outdoor gear and equipment to help you make informed decisions. We will be comparing two popular camping lanterns - the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash
/ Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Charge USB Rechargeable Lantern
and the Ledlenser ML4
. Both of these lanterns are compact and powerful, designed to provide ample illumination for your outdoor adventures. We will be examining their features, performance, and value for money to help you determine which one is the better option for your needs. So, let's dive in and see how they stack up against each other.
The Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash and the Ledlenser ML4 are both compact and lightweight lights suitable for outdoor activities. The main differences between the two lights are their battery life, IP rating, lumens, and power source.
Lumens & Runtime: The Goal Zero light has a longer battery life of up to 150 hours on low, compared to the Ledlenser ML4, which has a battery life of up to 45 hours on low. Additionally, the Ledlenser ML4 has a higher maximum lumens output of 300, while the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Charge has a maximum output of 150 lumens. The ML4 does have a replaceable battery option, allowing for the use of a higher capacity battery and longer operating time.
IP Rating: Another key difference between the two lights is their IP rating. The Goal Zero light has an IP66 rating, which means it is highly water-resistant and can withstand powerful water jets. In contrast, the Ledlenser ML4 has an IPX6 rating, which means it can only withstand powerful water jets from a distance. This makes the Goal Zero light more suitable for use in harsher weather conditions.
Dimmable light: The Goal Zero light also has a built-in USB port for recharging, while the Ledlenser ML4 comes with a magnetic charger. Both lights are dimmable, but the Goal Zero light can be dimmed slowly, while the Ledlenser ML4 dims according to light level.
Overall, the Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro Flash and the Ledlenser ML4 are both great options for outdoor lighting, with the Goal Zero light offering a longer battery life, higher lumens output, and better water resistance, while the Ledlenser ML4 is more compact and comes with a magnetic charger.
